rekonq 0.0.4 rpm (packaging continues)
I bumped into a neat little browser for KDE called “rekonq”. It’s a browser designed for WebKit and KDE and it’s light weight, all big pluses for me. I like fast little browsers which just do what they are supposed to do (browse the web as fast as possible) like midori and Arora. Although I very much like the fact that rekonq is designed to be KDE specific which Midori and Arora are not. I think it has the potential to become a serious thread for those two. Here are two screenshots of the browser:
Main Browser Window:
Installation is quite simple, you download the package from the author’s (adjam) website (http://rekonq.sourceforge.net/) and follow the rules in the INSTALL file. To improve my packaging skills I decided to wrap it up in a shiney RPM which I will share below. I tested it on Fedora 10 with Qt 4.5 and it seemed to work fine.
A download link can be found here: rekonq 0.0.4 (rpm, srpm and debuginfo).
Suggestions and comments are greatly appreciated. 🙂
PS. I recently finished the procedure to become a Fedora Contributor (Package Maintainer). I think this will be a nice project to get started with. I’ll keep you updated on this one.
